Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Life is not about physical crises; it's more about internal crises, the way things are seen, interpreted and felt. This is where the drama is. I love watching the dramas of people unfold around me - a slight movement of the eyes, a change in tone, a welling up of emotion. How will these moments play out?

My short stories almost always arise from glimpsing a real person in a real moment. But not having permission to see how their lives play out, I embroider that little glimpse into my own version of what might have happened, and often leave the reader to fill in the blanks from their own experience.

Cut Loose contains two short stories that were awarded First Prize in New Zealand's Bay Lit Short Story awards for 2010 and 2013.

About the Author

Author Heather Sylvawood has been writing non-fiction all herworking life, and only recently revived her love of fiction and theshort story genre. "Short stories have become a passion," she says. Some of my short stories have been retrieved fro earlier years and rewritten and edited to a crisper style. "You see so much in hindsight."

Not only is she writing short stories for adults, she has published several titles for children (well, more exactly, for adults to read to children) and is also in the middle of creating a novel.

A regular blogger, Heather Sylvawood writes weekly opinion pieces on Sylvawoodunderthestars and RealEstateRollercoaster. "Blogging is like exercising my mental muscles before I get down to fictional writing, which is so much more emotionally draining."
